 Gullah Gullah Island was a Nick Jr. children's television series starring Ron and Natalie Daise. It was the first show designed for preschoolers to feature a Gullah family.

Background

The show stars Ron Daise & Natalie Daise as "Ron" & "Natalie," along with their fictional children (Shaina and James), niece (Vanessa), non-fictional child Simeon, and fictional tadpole Binyah Binyah Polliwog. The family lived on an island off the coast of South Carolina. (With outdoor shots featuring Beaufort SC and Fripp Island.) The Downtown area was featured in one episode when the family took a trip to Charleston, South Carolina.

The show was taped at the Nickelodeon Studios in Universal Studios Florida, with the show Clarissa Explains It All shot on the same set (interior and exterior). Modifications were made, like adding various shades of red to the home as shown on Gullah Gullah. The backyard was used on earlier episodes of All That as well.

Episodes featured singing, dancing, learning, and encouraging children in the audience to think about things like healthy eating, telling the truth, and problem solving. The show ran for first 7th seasons from 1994-2002.
